Pre-Party Preparation: Sushi Making and Tempuras

Pre-Birthday Preparation: Sushi Rolls

Before Daren's actual birthday party, my boi and I went to his place to help out a little bit here and there in the afternoon. I have zero experience in making sushi, hence it was a golden opportunity for me to watch and learn from the pros. Yum, I really feel like making sushi for myself now!!!

Wasabi in every bite of the sushi, scary!
We'll save them for the "辣辣寿司" game later tonight.

Pre-Birthday Preparation: Home Made Sambal

Cynthia has made us "Sambal" as the dipping sauce for the cucumber =)

Pre-Birthday Preparation: Mushrooms for Tempura

One big pot of mushrooms. I have phobia of eating this kind of mushrooms, most probably because we had them too much when we first came to Australia.

Tempura Green Beans and Tempura Carrots.

    love, mica

  2. Christina,how to make the outer layer of tempura ya?

  3. Yvon S:
    Yeah, it was really fun!!!

    Hi Mica, I think it's pretty to make sambal belacan if you have a stone mortar at home. All you need is just some fresh chillies, shrimp paste, salt and lime =)

    Melodii, you can either buy those ready made tempura batters from Asian groceries or DIY using the ingredients below:

    1/2 cup flour
    1/2 cup cornstarch
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon sugar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 egg
    2/3 cup ice water


Dear readers,

Thanks for all your lovely comments and continual visits.
Hope I'll see you again soon! (✿◠‿◠)
